Open up your Ize......

I had put this elsewhere but thought it could maybe do with its own thread, time will tell.

Its simple, what are your Ize?

They could be personal to you, or about the world around you.

I think its a great way of people getting their thoughts and feelings across without spewing out a lot of deep psychological/philosophical dialogue.

Feel free to re-use some of the ones already given, if you agree with them then its not copying.

Here is my inspiration for this idea:

Ize Of The World

I think I know what you mean but watch what you say
'cause they'll be try to knock you down in some way
Sometimes it feels like the world is falling asleep
How do you wake someone up from inside a dream?

Your mind would wander and searched for its place in the night
Your body followed this feeling like following light
Once that your music was born it followed you 'round
And then it gave your activities meaning and let you be loud

You're sad but you smile
It not in your eyes
Your eyeballs won't change
It's the muscles around your eyes

An egg to fertilize
A pulse to stabilize
A body to deodorize
A life to scrutinize
A child to criticize
Young adults to modernize
Citizens to terrorize
Generations to desensitize

You're dreams are sweet and obsessed
And your overworked
You're overtaken by visions of being overlooked
How disappointed would D.(ead) I.(dealistic) D.(esperate) I.(nventor) P.(ioneer) P.(hilosophers)
Be to see such power in our hands all wasted on greed
Am I a prisoner to instincts?
Or do my thoughts just live
As free and detached
As boats to the dock?

Just like when music was born
And detached from your heart
Is your free time to free minds
Or for falling apart?

Night after night
You turn out the light
You don't fall asleep right away
"Are we... are we done?"

A desk to organize
A product to advertise
A market to monopolize
Movie stars you idolize
Leaders to scandalize
Enemies to neutralize
No time to apologize
Fury to tranquilize
Weapons to synchronize
Cities to vapor-i

- The Strokes (Lyrics by Julian Casablancas)

Here are some of mine i just came up with......

No morals we recognize
Lower classes to patronize
The third world to civilize
Voices to harmonize
Food to fertilize
Freedom fighters to ostracize
Nature to vandalize

So, any one want to join in?
